Skindrink is one of those products I've been wanting to buy since I've first discovered Lush, which was about 7 years ago. And just two weeks ago I finally got my sh*t together and bought the damn thing. The reason why I've never bought this before, really has nothing to do with the product itself, but with my state of mind.
7 years ago, I was as broke as one can be. I never had any money, just enough to get me through the week and maybe skipping meals from time to time to treat myself on something nice. And that's why when I got my first real job (and real money) 2 years ago, the first thing I did was spend it all on stuff I didn't need. Still leaving me broke by the end of the month. And now, 2 years into a real job, I still find myself in shops telling myself not to buy stuff (that I really do need) because I need that money for food. Which isn't true. I have a good paying teaching job and even when I splurge on food, I'm still able to buy me all the nice stuff I want. But my mind hasn't quite made that connection yet. And yes, I know I'm a very lucky person to be in the position I am now. But I did want to write this down to show you, that it hasn't always been this easy.
Back to Lush. Two weeks ago, I found myself staring at the Skindrink again. I've used this product through samples, which I shamelessly asked for every time I visited the store, and I knew from experience what a treat this product is for my dry, sensitive skin. And this time, my mind made the connection and I took this baby home with me. And my pretty face is thankful for it ever since. This product is nourishing, but not to greasy. This product is long-lasting. This product is basically perfect. It does have a weird smell but once you've passed that issue, you're good to go. And once I've emptied this baby, I'm going to buy me a refill, because I can. And I am ever grateful for it.
